Thermal Performance

Expert solutions that analyze a power plant’s total ability to produce electricity reliably and efficiently.

Thermal Performance Services

Over 30 years of expertise in thermodynamic theories and procedures

Thermal performance is the overall evaluation of a power plant’s electrical production with respect to its fuel consumption expressed in heat rate.  For nuclear power plants, an improved heat rate will translate to more electricity being provided to the grid and increased revenue to the plant.

GSE’s thermal performance solutions are focused on maximizing commercial advantage through increased efficiencies, reliability, and optimization of power/fuel ratios. We bring significant engineering and plant experience to our suite of analytical services.
